2-11 and 2-12-17
The Lord directed me to read the book of Habakkuk.
When I read chapter 2, I could feel He was going to speak to me.
He took me back to chapter 2 starting in verse 2.
What He spoke to me is in italics.
“Then the Lord answered me and said:”
“Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.”
Be patient My words are true, all I have spoken will come to pass in your days.
4 “Behold the proud, his soul is not upright in him;”
“But the just shall live by his faith.”
5 “Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, he is a proud man, and he does not stay at home.”
6 “Will not all these take up a proverb against him, and a taunting riddle against him, and say,”
The nations know that the righteous Judge is coming. They are your jury and accuser.
“And to him who loads himself with many pledges’?
7 Will not your creditors rise up suddenly?”
You have poked the bear and angered the dragon and My shield is no longer in front of you.
They will take your sons and daughters and they will ravage the your wives in front of you.
9 “Woe to him who covets evil gain for his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of disaster!”
10 “You give shameful counsel to your house, cutting off many peoples, and sin against your soul.”
This shall be the judgment upon this land, you shall be tired, poor, yearning for freedom, a wretched refuse, that is homeless and tempest tossed because your lamp has gone out!
12 “Woe to him who builds a town with bloodshed, who establishes a city by iniquity!”
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
13 “Behold, is it not of the Lord of hosts that the peoples labor to feed the fire,
and nations weary themselves in vain?”
I the Lord do not wish for men to only work for those things that moth and rust corrupts for they will be burned up in the Day of the Lord.
I say store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, that last forever.
14 “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
as the waters cover the sea.”
Every eye shall see Me coming on the clouds! Every knee shall bow to me and acknowledge
that I AM LORD, for My glory will be seen in all the earth. Some will fall down in worship but most will fall down in shame, disgrace and lament.
Today is the day of salvation, mercy and grace will be given. No man is promised tomorrow!
Call upon the name of Jesus in repentance of your sins and you will be saved!
